Thank you! I really appreciated your kindness in celebrating my 10th anniversary with you last Sunday. We have done some amazing things and I look forward to what else is in store for us as God continues to work through us.
With Gratitude and Love ~ Rev. Sara
Our next adult education session will be Sunday, January 13th. The focus: Living with Grief.
As we start 2019, we begin a new cycle of “membership dues” (per capita dues), which go to support the Minnesota Conference United Church of Christ. We are asking each member of Hazel Park UCC to consider giving an additional $10.00 during the month of January to cover these costs. Thank you for your consideration!
I am officially calling all delegates, visitors, and friends of the United Church of Christ to join us in Milwaukee, Wisconsin for the 32nd General Synod, June 21-25, 2019!
The 32nd General Synod promises to be an inspiring and engaging event in the life of the Church. Our keynote speaker is Dr. Matthew Desmond, professor of Sociology at Princeton University and Pulitzer Prize winner for the book, “Evicted: Poverty and Profit in the American City.”
We have inspiring preachers for the worship services. During Friday’s Opening Worship Service, The Rev. Kaji Spellman Douša; Sunday’s Community Worship Service, The Rev. Traci deVon Blackmon; Monday’s Worship Service, The Rev. Sharon Mei-Shem MacArthur and for the Closing Worship Service, The Rev. Dr. Amy Butler.
We will also celebrate the ministries of retiring Associate General Minister for Global Engagement and Operations, Co-executive of Global Ministries, The Rev. Dr. Jim Moos and Mr. Don Hart, President and Chief Investment Officer, United Church Funds.
We will re-elect the General Minister and President and elect a new Associate General Minister for Global Engagement and Operations, Co-executive of Global Ministries.
I invite you to bring a spirit of love, of compassion, of openness and of hope with you. I look forward to seeing you in Milwaukee! Until then, let the light of the living Christ shine in and through you, and be known to all whom you meet along the way.
John C. Dorhauer
General Minister and President

The Special offering for the month of January is: OCWM (Our Churches Wider Mission) Changing Lives: That’s Our Church’s Wider Mission.

We identify, recruit, educate and support leaders who inspire others. We support churches and plant new churches as vital places of worship, learning, and justice advocacy. We change lives through our global partnerships, missionaries and advocacy. Gifts to Our Church’s Wider Mission benefit the full range of the United Church of Christ mission across the country and around the globe. There are special offering envelopes in the pews for your donation. Thank you for your continued support of our special offerings.
